You’re in pain? Don’t look around for an answer. Try some self-analysis this time–maybe the answer is within.
Everyone has baggage. It could be the loss of a loved one, betrayal, heartbreak or a traumatic experience. While most of us struggle with our emotional issues, few others pick up their baggage and stroll leisurely through life.
So, what is it that these people seem to have and you don’t? The answer is quite simple–closure.
Most people aren’t able to get over pain and it has nothing to do with its intensity. It is the way we treat it. Denying its existence does more damage than good, pretending to be strong doesn’t help either and feeling sorry for ourselves is the worst thing to do. When we resort to measures like these, the pain doesn’t stop; it heals for the time being, and then without warning, returns with a vengeance.
Closure is a point that has to be reached. And so, let’s take it step by step.
Let the baggage go
Acceptance is the biggest and most crucial part of getting rid of your baggage. Stop denying what happened to you. It could be embarrassing or awkward but once you say it, you will feel better. Stand in front of a mirror and say it out loud.
Time heals the deepest of wounds. Scars will remain but the pain will dull overtime.
